The Ember Dragon

My latest creation is a dragon! I have loved dragons for a very long time, so this guy was very fun to do. I started with a sketch.

Then, I formed the initial wire base.

Put on the initial layer of super sculpi.

I decided that I wanted wings after all, so I put wire/foil on for the wing frame, and then put on the sculpi. The thin, skin layer of the wings is strait up super sculpi, but in retrospect, I wish I had rolled it out a little more evenly, but what’s done is done.

Then, I sculpted to my desired effect and baked him! dragon1 copy] dragon2 copy] dragon3

I then painted him with a metallic red paint, and went over with charcoal to give a burnt look. IMG_1555] IMG_1561] IMG_1568] IMG_1573] IMG_1602] IMG_1603] IMG_1615] IMG_1619] ] IMG_1636] IMG_1641] IMG_1646

In Between Two Trees

This last Easter I collaborated with many people in my church to create a stained glass window effect on our windows in the church sanctuary. The wonderful Amy Dry, Rachel Glazener, and Amy Jenson, and I planned and designed it, while many other members helped us to bring our plans into fruition.  Amy Dry wrote such a well written and thoughtful explanation of our goals and ideas, that I thought it would be better to just give you the link:
